Another sad demise...
The only time I saw Dave Alvin and the Guilty Men do Guitar Watson's "Gangster of Love" (and I would shout out for it every time I saw them) was at the Sweetwater. Totally ripped it up. Another memory of going to see Cowboy Jazz there (great band), Jerry was in coma recovery and Bobby was in the house. I asked how Jer was doing, and he said "he's getting better". It was a very relaxed moment and Bob was pretty cool. (Jeez, I haven't thought of that in many years)

That's Johny Guitar Watson, kids. Frank Zappa's favorite guitarist, as I'm sure Sactown Tom is probably aware.

Dude--You did it again--another great link. Now just find it by The Pleasure Barons and I can die a happy man. Forgot about FZ digging Johnny Guitar, I know DA bows down.

thanks for the link!!!

I needed that Johnny Guitar Watson since I haven't heard him in quite a while...just too much music and not enough time...

and outside of the great tune, you gotta love the band wearing jumpsuits...I wonder if they shopped at the same store...

Also, coming from someone with a decade in SF it is very sad to see the Sweetwater go, but selfishly at least I have a bunch of fine memories...
